Text: Philippians 3:1-21.
In this Chapter Paul begins by recounting what he was and had and calls it all loss compared to the great riches he received when he encountered the Lord on the road to Damascus. Are there things: your gender, tribe, clan, education etc in which you derive pride and pleasure? Paul submitted all these loads and they collapsed under the power of the Lord Jesus Christ. So should you! Strive to know the power of Jesus Christ’s resurrection and be prepared to share in His suffering especially in these troublesome days of corruption. Shine in the midst of darkness. Seek the righteousness of Jesus Christ and not of your own.
Meditate on verse 8. How are going to apply it to your life?
Lord of lords and King of kings, I pray that You will help me appreciate that I am nothing and that I can do nothing without You. You alone Jesus Christ are my Saviour and Lord. Amen.
